Nick Studer: EMpower Advocate

Nick Studer has been featured in INvolve’s EMPower 20 Advocates List 2020. This list recognises senior leaders who are not people of colour but are dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive business environment for for those who are.

Like others at Oliver Wyman and around the world, Nick has been mourning the disproportionate loss of innocent life borne by Black communities. In response, he is redoubling his efforts and those within the firm to combat racial prejudice wherever it is found and in whatever form it takes. 

Racism isn’t just a conscious bias held by “bad” people. Its ingrained in most of us unconsciously and in the systems of the societies we live in as people and operate in as businesses
Nick Studer, Managing Partner

Nick is the Managing Partner of Oliver Wyman’s Consumer, Industrials and Services Practice and serves as the executive sponsor of EMPOWERED. He uses his seniority to advance the firm’s inclusion and diversity agenda. For example, by leading efforts in the UK and Ireland to increase the diversity of our graduate hires, 22 percent of new joiners are now people of colour.
